This is an exceptionally aesthetic specimen of stibnite crystals. From an intergrown mass of fine crystals, a long, slender blade rises nearly 4 inches above the others. Some of the lower crystals are broken, but this does not detract from the beauty of this specimen. Calcite encrusts some of the lower crystals. One of the smaller crystals exhibits the "bent crystal" appearance sometimes seen in stibnite. This is due to the presence of glide planes within the crystal structure.
